Big Ten Bowl Projections – Week 12

Big Ten bowl projections heading into Week 12. Michigan falters, while Ohio State was hurt as well in Iowa’s huge Saturday night win over the Wolverines.

If you wanted chaos in your college football season, you received a serious dose of it this week.

Michigan fell to Iowa, which forced a domino effect in that it created a scenario in which Ohio State may not be able to play for a division title but still looks like a great candidate for the College Football Playoff if it wins out.

Meanwhile, Penn State is in the driver’s seat to play for the Big Ten title. If the Nittany Lions beat Rutgers and Michigan State while the Buckeyes defeat Michigan State and Michigan, James Franklin’s squad is going to Indianapolis because of its head-to-head tiebreaker over the Buckeyes.

And don’t forget about Wisconsin, which remains in the mix despite having two losses.

Where does your favorite Big Ten squad fit into the postseason equation?
